The 2017 The Vicar (Mourvedre, Grenache) is a bold, powerful wine that captures the natural exuberance of the year nicely. Sweet red cherry, plum, cedar and tobacco all flesh out in ample, creamy red that will drink well upon release. In 2017, the Vicar is seriously powerful and full of character. The blend of Alder Springs Grenache and Bedrock Mourvèdre works so well here. ... More details

Winery
Intense black cherry, leather, smoke, christmas spice and raspberries combine on the exotic aromas that can only be a blend of Grenache & Mourvedre. Sappy fruit and an intense savory streak make for a well rounded ideal of the two opposing flavors. Still tightly wound and loaded with freshness and precision, this wine will continue to age for many years in your cellar, while providing a powerful and appropriatly medium bodied red blend.

Region: California

California as a wine producing region has grown in size and importance considerably over the past couple of centuries, and today is the proud producer of more than ninety percent of the United States' wines. Indeed, if California was a country, it would be the fourth largest producer of wine in the world, with a vast range of vineyards covering almost half a million acres. The secret to California's success as a wine region has a lot to do with the high quality of its soils, and the fact that it has an extensive Pacific coastline which perfectly tempers the blazing sunshine it experiences all year round. The winds coming off the ocean cool the vines, and the natural valleys and mountainsides which make up most of the state's wine regions make for ideal areas in which to cultivate a variety of high quality grapes.

Country: United States

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.
